What year 1800 ? On the earlier 1800's there is a blank two pin connector under the left faring pocket that is keyed but limited to about 3amp. That should handle a GPS no problem.
I would never cut/splice into any factory wiring on the wing. For the GPS just get a connector to match the OEM and wire that to the GPS power cord, most bike mechanics keep a few laying around they have cut off junked bikes.

I would just add a 12v cigarette outlet and install it in the left hand pocket. You can usually use the factory two pin plug as suggested above or run power from the accessory tab on the fuse box. Very simple install. Good luck.

On my Garmin unit I used an EC power plug connection in the left pocket. Like you I wanted to be able to take it off when needed. Except for drilling the hole for the socket,all of the rest of it was plug and play.

He may not know what EC is. Post a link if you are referencing something, give the link to the connector he used.
